    Looks good, Jim! My local library has 3d printers that members can use. This is terrific for small prints.

    Re: Wide angle lenses for 8x10

    If you really want a wide lens, and you don't want to pay a lot of money, and you don't want to use a really dim lens in a wonky shutter, then the 120mm f/8 super wide lenses are a good choice. ...

    Re: Reverse Osmosis System

    But the system does waste a lot of water, and it should only be used with water that's bacteriologically safe. (Some systems have a UV light to minimize this problem.)

    Not using a tripod head works well most of the time, right up until it doesn't. If you know that you'll always be on a flat surface shooting horizontally, then you should be fine. But if you're...

    First, you need to know how much light you'll need, i.e. what'll give you the shutter speed and aperture that you want to shoot at with whatever film you pick. You'll need much less light to shoot...

    I have a Gitzo 1325. It's really good, but it's not very tall.

  24. Re: Best material to 3D print lens boards etc

    If you have access to the various materials, you might try printing a lens board with each and comparing. My guess is that ABS would be the most durable. Make sure to test for opacity.
